Our Minnesota weather is at least living up to it’s name as we complete this week’s menu! We often times comment about how the weather can change so quickly and how it affects how we move about or what sounds good for dinner. With our warm streak, a cool dip and now a return to warm weather soon(tomorrow!) our menu for this week has many options, check out the menu here.
We start off with some news this week that is worthy of reviewing and sharing. Recently in the media, there have been some reports on ground beef that have raised some questions with our customers. We appreciate all of your questions and know if we have heard from some of you, there may be others that want to know about our ground beef. We want you to know and be confident when purchasing our ground beef, it is 100% fresh ground beef with no fillers or additives. We grind our fresh ground beef daily in-store to make sure the quality lives up to our standards and delivers on what you, our customers expect. In addition, we have now confirmed all fresh ground beef that we purchase pre-packaged and sell in our stores is 100% ground beef with no fillers or additives. Spread the word.
On the menu for this week on Tuesday night is Mom’s Meatloaf! You may not think of popping a meatloaf in the oven when you get home, but our own Chef Melanie gave us a tip that works just great! Take the whole meatloaf and pour it out of the pan before baking onto parchment paper. Slice the meatloaf in 4 or 5 slices for a one pounder to 7 or 8 slices for a two pounder. Place the slices on parchment paper on your baking sheet. Pop them in the oven at 350 degrees and in 30 minutes or until 160 degrees or great you have meatloaf! Fully cooked, slices of meatloaf ready to serve. It makes meatloaf a simple weeknight meal! Click here to check out a quick video.(Cooking spray is optional if you think it might stick)
